SB100 Carbon C1 GX Eagle Mountain Bike by Yeti Cycles
As the age old saying goes, you've got to get up to get down, and we think that there are few better dicsiplines in life that fully captivate the true meaning of this than riding a bike. The trouble is, many steeds are so single-purpose built that they only excel at one or the other. Featherweight cross-country steeds have the reputation of rocketing up climbs, and feeling flighty and twitchy on descents, while downhill ready enduro sleds are a but cumbersome when you point them uphill. Yeti aims to find a balance between the two with its down-country SB100 Carbon C1 GX Eagle Mountain Bike.

Fortunately, the SB100, has some pretty good lineage to draw inspiration from and even though the geometry and suspension have cross country riding and racing on its mind as the intended purpose, it's hard not to notice the trail and enduro highlights that bleed over from Yeti's longer travel offerings. The brief exodus from the XC scene allowed for a few reboots an...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
